'This is the book on Alexander we have all been waiting for. Bosworth has achieved that uncompromising balance which is or ought to be the aim of all professional historians. This is a book which the complete non-specialist will enjoy and can rely on unconditionally. An enviably superb book.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
"A.B. Bosworth has produced a well-written and careful study of Alexander's conquest of the Persian Empire which will appeal to both scholars and an informed reading public." The International History Review
